I need help. I am trying to set-up a Dish Network satellite system in my RV with no success. The system consists of a Dish 500 satellite dish with a DP Dual LNB mounted on a tripod, connected to a single 311 receiver in the RV. I have been unable to get any satellite signal what so ever. I am using a known working receiver that I have removed from my home, and which I use all the time. I have tried three (3) LNB’s all of which were supposed to be in good condition. I have checked all of the cable, and connections numerous times. I have checked for shorts in the cable, shorts to ground and the integrity of the crimp connectors, which have been crimped with a ratcheting “Die” crimper. I have checked voltage to the LNB, and have 18.6 VDC. I have connected the RG/6 directly to the back of the 311 as well as having connected it through the RV satellite feed. Total cable length, does not exceed 50’ at any time. I have tried aligning the dish using the conventional method of dish markings and a compass & signal meter, and have purchased an align-a-site all to no avail!!! CAN ANYONE GIVE ME SOME GUIDENCE and maybe a logical trouble shooting sequence. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
